Abstract: My dissertation investigates commonly used testing and estimation procedures and extends these by taking into account more heterogeneity. In chapter 2, me and my co-author Andreas Dzemski provide a new overidentification test that allows for essential heterogeneity. In chapter 3, I prove weak consistency up to a measure preserving transformation for maximum-likelihood estimation of unobserved latent positions in a Euclidean space just based on observable information of the agent's linking behavior. In chapter 4, I propose a new measure of centrality which exploits the latent space structure and identifies agents who connect clusters.
